Farming For Health & Flavor

August 16, 2016 6:00 PM
$30-50

Take a behind-the-scenes tour of how the farming decisions made on Elmwood Stock Farm influence the flavor and health of the food grown here. Elmwood’s Mac Stone will lead a walking tour that explores the connection between food and health, providing an explanation of organic farming principles from an eater’s perspective. Guests will visit the greenhouses, high tunnels, crop fields and livestock to talk about organic farming, pasture-raised meats and the nutrient-dense foods raised on diversified organic farms.

A brief history of Elmwood Stock Farm and and the path that was taken to become USDA certified organic will take place while guests enjoy a farm-food tasting with in-season Elmwood ingredients. Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions of Elmwood’s farmers and to swap best recipes and food stories with one another.

Elmwood Stock Farm, in Georgetown, Ky., is a 6th-generation family farm that began as a producer of Black Angus breeding-stock cattle. The cattle are still an important part of the farm ecosystem and farm business, though over the past decade, the farm has branched out to produce a variety of organic vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, tobacco and even compost. Elmwood is committed to healthy and wholesome production of superior, high-quality, fresh farm products. Organic certification and close family involvement ensure that safe and sustainable farming practices are followed, livestock are well cared for, and land and water conservation remain a priority. Elmwood’s produce, eggs and meats can be found at farmers markets, local restaurants and grocery stores, and through its CSA programs in Kentucky and Ohio.
